My practice is rooted firmly in the belief that psychotherapy can help you encounter the fullest, healthiest and most complete version of yourself.
While I have been trained primarily in relational psychodynamic (insight-oriented) psychotherapy, when appropriate I incorporate other modalities (mindfulness, integrative and positive psychology).
My style is warm, interactive, direct and collaborative.
Together we will explore how past experiences impact the relationships you have with others in the present. We will uncover patterns of thinking, behaving and relating that get in the way of connecting from your best authentic self. Tolerating stress and pain and finding alternative ways to confront life’s challenges are skills you’ll develop in your work with me by gaining deeper understanding and awareness of yourself and others.
I believe in self-compassion, self-acceptance, empowerment and resiliency as pillars of my therapeutic approach. My goal is to help my clients find joy, love and calm in their lives.
